A 10-year-old boy had a close call involving a shark during a surfing competition in Folly Beach on Sunday. An 8-foot bull shark reportedly bit a portion of the boy's surfboard, which momentarily pulled him under the water. Thankfully, the boy made it to shore unscathed.
This is the third shark "attack" this summer. A 14-year-old swimmer was bitten badly enough to require surgery in Kiawah Island in June, while a man in Isle of Palms sustained a large gash on his foot after being bit in July.
